Visited this site during Doors Open Milwaukee. Had never heard of it before. Very interesting story surrounding the move from Europe and background of the tiny, centuries-old chapel. Even non-religious or non-Catholic people would feel moved and a sense of spirituality inside. Quite a thing, really. Worth a visit and tour.

This chapel was built in 1420 and was donated to Marquette University. Worth a quick trip to see it if you are in the area. We walked here from the Pabst Mansion.

Right in the middle of campus. Could be a nice quiet place for meditation. The story of how it came to Milwaukee is very interesting.

Intrigue and mystery surround this warm, special little place. Well worth the walk through the beautiful campus to see this old historic chapel brought over from Europe to be rebuilt.

A step back in time...wonderful reminder of the past, a moment to reflect and meditate and available free for the taking. You would be remiss to not enjoy this treasure.

This building was originally built as St. Martin de Seysseul in the 15th century (1420 AD) in Chasse, near Lyon France. Gertrude Hill Gavin purchased it during the 1920 and had it shipped to Long Island where it was rebuilt. She renamed it and Pope Pius IX gave her permission to have Mass in it and at that time she...

A real medieval building right here in America. It's an amazing place nestled in amongst the science buildings on the Marquette University campus. The inside is serene, and I like to meditate there when I have the chance. I believe it's open to the public between 10 am and 4 pm every day.

The chapel is both beautiful and historic. It is located on the Marquette campus, which is right off the expressway, and it is a good point of interest when visiting Milwaukee.
